Mike Tyson offers to train Joshua ahead of Usyk rematch

Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has offered to train Anthony Joshua for his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk. The British-Nigerian boxer lost his heavyweight world titles to Usyk and the pair will go at it once more in the spring of 2022.

The fight will be career-defining for Joshua, with victory opening up a path to take on Tyson Fury in what would be one of the most lucrative fights of all time. While defeat would leave him a long and possibly insurmountable mountain back to the top of the sport.

Joshua has moved to America to train for the bout and is on the lookout for new ideas to help atone for the loss, and the 55-year-old Tyson has offered his services. “That’d be an honour, Not to fight, but to help each other, that’d be awesome,” Tyson said.

Tyson also had encouraging words for Joshua and another fallen heavyweight world champion, Deontay Wilder, who was beaten twice by Tyson Fury.
